      checking flop is fine, but I don´t see reason why you should raise on the turn
      I think better is just call and also call river, if you want to play small pot.
      If you want to play bigger pot, then you shoudl start out by betting on the flop.

      Against unknown,shouldn't the bet on the flop be standard for protection?

      Thanks.

      yeah, you can bet, what when you face c/r (which would often happen on that board- would you like to play for stacks)
      I think every hand that c/r us has very good equity or we´re way behind, so I don´t mind just check and let him bet with worse hands
